Creative touch-typing method wins Europe
Belitsoft Company belongs to Joomla community and provides wide range of Joomla development services. This includes analytics, custom Joomla development (web portals, components, systems, etc.) as well as project support and maintenance.
The TICKEN project is the showcase of our Joomla development. From the moment of its launch it has become extremely popular and on March 25, 2010 Ticken.nl project won 2010 Netherlands IT Startup Award of the annual Thuiswinkel Awards in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. This unprecedented success was a great achievement both for its author Martin Beijer and for its developer – Belitsoft Joomla development team.
The challenge of the project was to create easy and effective yet interactive and attractive touch-typing course within short time period and limited budget. The aim was to develop software, implementing agile method of touch-typing teaching created by Martin Beijer. He was not satisfied with standard touch-typing course his daughter attended and he decided to let both children and adults learn touch-typing with fun and at affordable price.
The solution of the challenge was simple. The main functionality of the learning portal – touch-typing course - is developed on the platform of JoomlaLMS PRO version. 6 other Joomla components were either customized or developed to complete the portal functionality and to meet all the client’s requirements.
Custom features list of the TICKEN portal include:
Belitsoft maintains the project and continues its development. Currently this online touch-typing course is available in native languages in Belgium (2010, ticken.be), France (2011, ticken.fr) and UK (2011, ticken.co.uk). German version is on the way (ticken.de).
We are glad to be a part of this great success and hope that there will be time when Martin Beijer’s course will be available in many other languages across the Globe. Contact us to get more information or discuss your Joomla development plans.
